@ -5,17 +5,22 @@ Opinionated man page (roff) to html converter.
### Usage
Here's how [my man page](https://man.eddie.sh) is created:
```bash
./man-to-html edward-shen.man index.html edward-shen "Edward Shen Manual"
./man-to-html edward-shen.man index.html
```
You can also specify version number, page number, and date:
```bash
./man-to-html edward-shen.man index.html edward-shen "Edward Shen Manual" 4.2.0 1 "January 1st, 1970"
This script will automatically fetch in metadata information from the
man page. Specifically, it'll parse the first line:
```roff
.TH cmd-name page date version title
```
This might not work and will likely break if the man page's first line
isn't in that exact format.
### Prereqs
- `pandoc`
Install `pandoc`.
